World Cup slalom star Aleksander Khoroshilov will use Fischer equipment for at least two more years, as he recently signed a new contract with the company. As the only Russian on the product and as a long-standing member of the Fischer race family, Khoroshilov fully established himself at the world-class level in the 2014-15 season.
The 31-year-old Russian finished in the top 10 in every World Cup slalom race this past season and was eighth at the World Championships. The most notable results were his third-place finishes in Åre and Méribel, which also secured his third-place result in the seasonal discipline ranking, as well as his spectacular victory in front of 40,000 spectators at Schladming.
“It’s great when an athlete progresses together with us. What unites Aleksander and us is a long journey together, with numerous ups and downs,” said Fischer Racing Director Siegi Voglreiter. “Our racing family sticks together, in good times and also in not so good times, and as you can see, it pays off.”
“I am very happy that I will be skiing with Fischer also in the future. I have been using their equipment for nine years and we have always worked incredibly well together,” said Khoroshilov. “This season was fantastic, and I am absolutely delighted. A dream has come true and I hope to continue with these successes next season, too.”
